Marmur Big, Medium and Fine

Lime based minerial finishing plaster creating rustic surfaces.

General Features:

MARMUR lime based finishing plaster coat, is formulated in the whole respect of traditional and historical “recipes” and therefore contains well seasoned hydrated lime putty, fine marble powder, coloring oxides and earths, linseed oil and rheologic modifiers, which guarantee a perfect workability of the product.

MARMUR creates aesthetic cloudy effects, with soft and vibrant shades. The thickness of the product applied builds up a long lasting and durable protection.

Together with “Antiche Patine” mixed with “Lattedicalce” MARMUR originates soft, colored and, if required, semi-transparent glazes imitating the typical features of our Renaissance tradition.

The high alkalinity degree typical of lime and a good permeability rate make of MARMUR a perfect natural anti mold agent.

Texture:

MARMUR is available in three different grain sizes and each of them originates a completely different aesthetic effects: soft and velvet-like (imitating marble when polished with an inox trowel) for MARMUR Fine, similar to a skimming coat for MARMUR Medium and to a scratch coat for MARMUR Big.

Uses:

Finishing coat of exterior facades in historical town and country settings, in respect of the historical heritage of the surrounding environment.

Decorative interior finishing coat.

Natural lime plasters represent MARMUR’s most suitable substrate, since the product reacts chemically with them, building up a unique “body” able to preserve this lime coating for a longer period of time.

Following the correct instructions about surface preparation MARMUR may also be applied over:

  • Marmorino ks, Marmur Fine
  • Lime and Cement Mortars
  • Premixed renderings containing minimum 30% of lime
  • Pre-existing lime and gypsum plasters
  • Moisture-permeable plasters
  • Gypsum plasterboard

Substrate Preparation:

The substrate must be perfectly dry, dust-free, with no humidity and salts stains.

New natural lime plasters: the substrate should “mature” for a period of minimum 20 days; then apply MARMUR lime plaster and wet thoroughly the wall in case of windy and extremely hot weather.

New or recent lime and cement mortars, premixed renderings, gypsum and plaster boards: apply one priming coat of MARMUR Fine, mixed 1:1 with IsoSil (siloxane clear sealer) and 4/5 parts of clean water. Let dry 4-6 hours then apply MARMUR lime coating.

Pre-existing chalking lime plasters: remove damaged and peeling areas with an adequate tool or high-pressure washing; apply one priming coat consisting of MARMUR Fine mixed 1:1 with IsoSil (siloxane clear sealer) and 4-5 parts of clean water. After a few hours smooth the wall with one coat of MARMUR Medium, if necessary. Wait at least 4-6 hours prior to the application of MARMUR lime coating.

Old synthetic paints and plasters: remove the synthetic finishing coat with a paint remover containing no paraffin. Wash the substrate by means of a high-pressure washing and prepare it according to its nature and following the instructions above.

Application Procedure & Recommendations:

MARMUR lime plaster is ready for use and therefore does not require any water dilution. Apply in two coats with a stainless steel trowel is recommended to wait 8 hours between the 2 coats. Work into the second coat, while it is still setting, with a sponge float. MARMUR Big may also be smoothed down with a wooden float. The “marbling effect” typical of MARMUR Fine is achieved by polishing the second final coat with an inox trowel, which must be kept wet with water and passed over the substrate until the required level of sheen has been reached. Stain effects, patinas or transparent glazes maybe achieved with Antiche Patine (pigment) mixed with Lattedicalce and applied over MARMUR with any tool, at least 12 hours after the second coat.

Do not apply with rainy weather or with air or substrate temperature below 5° C.

Protect the facades from rain, at least along the first 48 hours, i.e. until lime has finished to set and started to get hard.

Yield:

MARMUR Fine: (1.5 – 2 kg per m2) or (7 – 9 ft2 per kg) in two coats, depending on the roughness of the substrate.

MARMUR Medium: (1.8 - 2.5 kg per m2) or (4 – 6 ft2 per kg) in two coats, depending on the roughness of the substrate

MARMUR Big: (2.5 - 3.5 kg per m2) or (3.1 – 4.3 ft2 per kg) in two coats, depending on the roughness of the substrate

Specific Weight:

1,646 kg/dmc

Color Range:

Packaging and Shelf Life:

25kg pails. The packaged product, if stored at temperatures between (+5° and 35°C) or (41° and 95°F), is guaranteed for 12 months.

Specification:

Application of MARMUR (type Medium or Fine) lime coating, containing well seasoned hydrated lime putty, fine marble powder, coloring oxides and earths, linseed oil and rheologic modifiers, manufactured by Novacolor, Forlì, and applied in two coats with a stainless steel trowel, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The second coat will be smoothed down with a sponge float and eventually polished with an inox trowel to get a “closed” texture. The “marbling effect” typical of MARMUR Fine is achieved by polishing the second final coat with an inox trowel like, which must be kept wet with water and passed over the substrate until the required level of sheen has been reached

The substrates will be previously treated as follows (choose your specific case and calculate this as a separate charge):

New natural lime plasters: the substrate should “mature” for a period of minimum 20 days; then apply MARMUR lime plaster and wet thoroughly the wall in case of windy and extremely hot weather.

New or recent lime and cement mortars, premixed renderings, gypsum and plaster boards: apply one priming coat of MARMUR Fine, mixed 1:1 with IsoSil (siloxane clear sealer) and 4/5 parts of clean water. Let dry 4-6 hours then apply MARMUR lime coating.

Pre-existing chalking lime plasters: remove damaged and peeling areas with an adequate tool or high-pressure washing; apply one priming coat consisting of MARMUR Fine mixed 1:1 with IsoSil (siloxane clear sealer) and 4-5 parts of clean water. After a few hours smooth the wall with one coat of MARMUR Medium, if necessary. Wait at least 4-6 hours prior to the application of MARMUR lime coating.

Old synthetic paints and plasters: remove the synthetic finishing coat with a paint remover containing no paraffin. Wash the substrate by means of a high-pressure washing and prepare it according to its nature and following the instructions above.

Stain effects, patinas or transparent glazes maybe achieved with Antiche Patine mixed with Lattedicalce and applied over Era lime paint with any tool, at least 12 hours after the second coat.
